VW GTI 35th Anniversary Edition 01.jpg

Volkswagen‘s hot new ‘Edition 35‘ version of the GTI will make the jump across the Atlantic, pleasing performance junkies and Vee-Dub fans across the nation. Recently unveiled at the 2011 Worthersee Tour GTI meet, 35th anniversary edition of the original hot hatch may not arrive right away… and it might get a name change too.

The reason for the changes has to do with the fact that the GTI hasn’t been on sale here for 35 years. Rather, it will only be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2012. That being said, look for an ‘Edition 30′ model soon with the requisite badge changes on the fenders and seats.

Rest assured, however, the car will come with the rest of the goodies, including the 235-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter!
